Dresden Plate Quilt


I love country and I enjoy using those types of things in my home.  I have a quilt that is very old - hand quilted in 1895!  The mother of a very good friend of my mother quilted that quilt.  When my mother's friend died - my mother was given four  quilts made by the mother of her friend. My three siblings and I each received one.  It is a treasure to me.

However, I do not quilt.  I love the look of quilts.  I love the heritage of quilts.  I totally dislike the sewing of a large quilt. I have made several baby quilts.  I have made one large quilt and I will never again make another large one.  I need satisfaction from making a creative project sooner than it takes to make a quilt.  And that is especially so if the quilt is made up of tiny pieces.

But now -- a paper quilt.  I can do that!  I enjoyed making the above paper quilt and I thought the verse on the Technique Junkie stamp Fairest of Them All (http://techniquejunkies.com/fairest-of-them-all/) went with this perfectly!

I heat embossed the saying and added color with my Copic markers.

Enjoy your weekend -- and get inky!
